Unable to import project

Hi Team,

Please help me on the following error.

"The custom field 'Business Area' does not contain option 'Unassigned', the import can not continue".

But the custom field 'Business Area' dose contain option 'Unassigned' still is giving

the same error.

Hi Laba,

There is a knowledge base article titled Project Import fails due to missing Custom Field Options that may help with this:

This is caused by this bug:  JRASERVER-65734 - JIRA incorrectly uses fieldconfigscheme ID instead of fieldconfiguration ID to look up Custom Field Options Verified

Related bugs are tracked here:

  • JRASERVER-36629 - Project Import does not import Custom Field Select Option values Resolved
  • JRASERVER-63226 - Project Import blocked due to missing Custom Field Select Option values Verified

Please review the workaround section for the way to fix this.
